Singles

I love all the potential contained in a set of singles not yet plied. It gives me great joy to see them sitting there all ready to go.

These particular singles are from an inglenook batt called Jalapeno Peppers. They are thick and thin and slubby and whatever they want to be. I didn’t force them into submission at all. I can’t WAIT to see what the finished two ply looks like!  It will be a gradient. I pulled strips from the gradient batt and alternated between two spindles. This seemed to work fairly well for blending into new colors, but there will be some harsher transitions.

Sadly, they will have to wait. I need to finish up what is currently on the wheel (bamboo blend!) before I ply these. And since it is a ride night, there won’t be any spinning this evening.
